The Inaugural Learning Network Conference

The Campaign to End Loneliness is delighted to announce our first annual conference for our growing Learning Network taking place from 10.00 to 17.00 on Monday 17 November 2014 in London.

Our keynote presentation from ageing expert Professor Christina Victor, will bring to life the very latest research on loneliness across the lifecourse. We’ll also hear from older people, who will explain what loneliness means to them and their particular community: be that a physical urban or rural home, one formed around their LGBT sexuality, or a different community created after being diagnosed with dementia or becoming a carer.

Our expert workshops will cover:

  • How can we identify the most lonely and isolated in our communities
  • What we know to date about ‘what works’ in preventing and alleviating loneliness
  • How we can best support bereavement to avoid loneliness

Campaign to End Loneliness

Loneliness and social isolation are harmful to our health: research shows that lacking social connections is as damaging to our health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.

 

Yet the extent of the risk to public health from loneliness is still not being tackled sufficiently by policy makers, health or care providers or the general public.

 

Through the vehicle of an independent campaign, we seek to tackle loneliness in older age. With 600 organisations supporting our ambition to challenge a hidden, yet chronic problem affecting almost three million older people in the UK today, the Campaign to End Loneliness works in three ways to tackle loneliness in older age:

 

  • Influencing commissioners to provide leadership and support for activities that tackle loneliness in older age:
  • Providing learning and networking for organisations who want to tackle loneliness in older age
  • Sharing evidence about the issue of loneliness 

 

If you believe loneliness in older age must be tackled, join the Campaign to End Loneliness.

The Campaign’s five partner organisations are Age UK Oxfordshire, Independent Age, Manchester City Council, Royal Voluntary Service and Sense.
